to become reality, i think it hurts your ability to win an election. >> republicans are lost. they haven't learned anything. they are just as clueless now as they were back during the far right circus of the republican national convention and presidential primary. today, we learn that in 2012 newt gingrich and rick santorum almost teamed up for the so-called unity ticket. they wanted to take down mitt romney together. wow, what a ticket that would have been. blah people. it would have been up there with laurel and hardy, twiddly dee and dwiddly dumb. they would have been unstoppable. the only problem, quote, gingrich and son for rum could not agree on who would get to be president. wow. guys, you could have had it all. you were this close. maybe you should try teaming up again. i'm sure you got all of the right ideas of this is what is wrong with the party now. joining me now is melissa harris perry and e.j. dionne. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us. >> melissa? >> they couldn't decide who gets to be president. president obama gets to be president. right? and the rea
the election, republicans have tried everything to rebrand themselves. they've been told to stop being the stupid party. they've conducted polls. they've gone on retreats, and now after all that self-examination, the rnc is out with 100-page report on what went wrong in 2012. it's been finding voters said the party is, quote, scary. that's just the tip of the iceberg. >> but the report notes that the way we communicate or principles isn't resonating widely enough. focus groups described our party as narrow-minded, out of touch, and, quote, stuffy old men. the perception that we're the party of the rich unfortunately continues to grow. >> scary, narrow-minded, out of touch, stuffy old men. i think they've got it this time. the first step is admitting you have a problem. so how do they plan on fixing this mess? >> we're going to be setting up an rnc field office in the san francisco area for a more rational number of debates. what? what? was busy that month? how does that fix being scary and out of touch? what about policy and principles? >> to be clear, our principles are sound. >> soun
rejected in the election. tomorrow, republicans are expected to vote for the ryan budget overwhelmingly and that has some democrats licking their chops. "the hill" reports that the democrats are ready to slam gop on the ryan budget putting this out on tut this ad before the 2 election. so go ahead, republicans, vote for that ryan budget. the american people are going to have a very different vote for you very soon. joining me now is congressman -- democratic congressman grayson and cynthia tucker. >> good to be here, reverend. >> it might be the worst one yet. how do you explain these republicans in the house? >> it's bad for seniors, bad for children, and it's bad for everyone, even white guys. it raises the debt by $6 trillion. that's $20,000 for every man, women, and child in this country for the sake of giving a $400,000 tax break to millionaires. the republicans are literally trying to bribe millionaires with their own money. >> cynthia, a new poll shows that paul ryan's favorability rating before the election in august was 50%. now it's down to 35%. they are following someone who
because we learned from last year's elections that a decade ago, two decades ago is no longer what some of those states in terms of the electorate has become. and i think you could galvanize your vote if you took some stands in some of those states. >> congressman? >> look, the way the mayor's doing this is the way he ought to do it. i'm a democrat. i want democrats to be in a majority. but there comes a time when politics must not supersede that which is right. the majority of us in this country believes the direction we're going in terms of universal background checks is the right thing to do. if some democrats fall or stand in the way, so be it. i want to be in the majority. it's not fun in the minority. but i also would like to have a society where we're not scheduling almost some kind of tragedy every other month. >> no problem with that at all with me. i agree with you, because the majority is a wonderful thing to have but if we cannot stand up when babies are shot in newtown and children are shot in the streets of chicago, over 500 last year, then what are we in the majority for
they lost in the election. >> we have to do a lot better job and do a lot more to make up ground in minority communities with women and young voters. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic community or region of this country. >> make up ground with women in minorities? really? then why did the republicans in arkansas ran through a new voter i.d. bill to suppress the minority vote? why do they poise the ban all in a state, a state that has the most restrictive laws in the country? during the election, president obama promised change we can believe in and he's delivering. republicans promise change, too. but nobody believes in it, least of all the republicans. joining me now are krystal ball and joan walsh. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> do the republicans not notice their rhetoric, that it doesn't mesh with their reality? >> i don't know, to be honest with you. because on the one hand, they see the demographic trends. the rnc conducted an autopsy of their dead party. we know that there's a problem. >> we call it a flawtopsy. >> on the other
elections and the abolitionist wing who'd rathder fight thand switch are in for a prolonged separation. progressives, enjoy it while it lasts. 2014 will be tough but once these two gangs, the palin and rove crowds have to meet again in 2016 it's not going to be pretty. it sure as hell isn't going to be marriage. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being us.
